A Curse Dark as Gold by Elizabeth C. Bunce.
I was in a bit of a quandary about what to do with such small skeins but then Sarah suggested that I use them in alternating stripes for something. A perfect idea! I only wish I had plied all of the blue with the dark brown Corriedale and made more of the two color yarn. I like it the best of the two. I'd say the blue is about a worsted weight and the two color is fingering weight.
I wound the Grama's Irises yarn into a cake today in anticipation of making a shrug with it. Don't you think the color is so pretty now that it's wound?
